Looking at the Roebling and Lorimer, but not quite sure how the models compare? The answer is actually quite simple!

Here's a Quick Summary:




The Lorimer's stock saddle is slightly wider and more cushioned in comparison to the Roebling's saddle. It's important to remember that saddles are highly subjective from rider to rider. We always suggest trying the bike with its stock saddle before investing into an aftermarket seat that'll potentially better suit your needs. 



The Roebling is only available in its ever-popular Matte Black colorway. The Lorimer comes in two colorways - Matte Denim, and Soft Ivory. It is not possible to swap colors across the two models.



The Lorimer is overall a smaller bicycle. It's available in sizes 14" - 18", and can accommodate riders from 4'11" - 5'7". The Roebling is available in sizes 15" - 23", and can accommodate riders from 5'0" - 6'4".

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
